On the Alps there are many ski resorts recommended to beginners. Every ski area has some easy slope for beginners, but many people aren’t satisfied by going down always on the same slope and look for ski areas where there are many easy slopes suitable for them, where they can enjoy themselves without finding too difficult runs. There are skiing areas where also inexperienced skiers can enjoy long tours skis on without having to repeat the same slope or take the same ski lift.

Ski holidays in Italy for beginners

Seiser Alm (South Tyrol)

Alpe di Siusi surely is a ski area suitable for beginners, with its mild slopes and a typically Dolomites landscape. We recommend it to less experienced skiers and to families with kids who are looking for relax and quietness.

Alta Badia (South Tyrol)

Tris is a wide ski area in the heart of South Tyrol with wide runs on mild slopes suitable for less experienced skiers and for beginners who want to greatly start their experience on the snow. Even if this resort is renowned for its black slope Gran Risa, most slopes here are quite easy. We recommend the Alta Badia ski area for ski holidays to beginners who are anyhow demanding.

Breuil Cervinia (Aosta Valley)

Cervinia is a famous Aosta Valley ski resort located high up, but its slopes are rather easy. There is a ski school area in the valley near Cretaz, but the most interesting area for beginners surely is Plan Maison. The homonymous chairlift serves a blue slope which is quite long and easy. This area is at an high altitude, over 2600 m, which allows a soft, not frozen snow, during the whole season. There is a return slope long and simple passing through the 6 slope, going down to Cretaz (but it doesn’t arrive to the gondola lift starting point).

Torgnon (Aosta Valley)

Torgnon is an easy, middle size ski area in Aosta Valley. Its exposure to the sun for the main part of the day make it particularly enjoyable by families and children who want to start skiing or enjoy the snow in the baby parks.

Tonale Pass (Lombardy/Trentino)

Straddling between Lombardy and Trentino, Tonale Pass offers many plain slopes suitable for beginners. We recommend the blue slope Valbiolo, allowing the less experienced to enjoy a long, not challenging run. Moreover, the little ones can learn in the Fantaski park.

For a single day skiing near Milan

Piani di Bobbio (Lombardy): this resort is suitable for beginners. It is a middle size ski area more suitable for one-day trips than for white weeks. Reachable in a short time from Milan or Lecco, it is a little crowded in the weekend, but the slopes here are very mild and relaxing. The most technical area is on the Bergamo Alps side, on Val Torta slopes.

Piani di Artavaggio (Lombardy): this ski area is for children, thanks to its good sun exposure. Even if it is very close to Piani di Bobbio (and consequently to Milan and Lecco), it is rather less crowded. For now, there are only magic carpets for the first downhill on the snow.
